Not sure how there were 2 poor reviews here, so thought I'd give something more recent. This place is awesome. Was referred to them by a family friend, and was very pleasantly surprised by a few things. First, they quickly will see you and your car, not making you wait days and days..... most times, they've been able to have me come in same day. Secondly, I didn't even ask for it, but they offered me a temporary car to use for the times I've had to leave my vehicle there for more than a few hours. No extra charge. What a surprise! Lastly, this is one of the only repair shops I've ever used that will suggest cheaper options if it makes sense. They always point out why a more expensive option may not be worth it, and how a cheaper option may be all I need. If you want an honest service center with affordable prices, quick service, and knowledgeable staff, Tostis is the place!
My car needed terminals replaced due to not starting or staying running. Everything worked before and after picking it up yesterday, my radio, clock, and alarm system are not working. I will not go back because Chris said I had break issues and a strut problem. Just replacing battery terminals and a brake line and caliper cost almost $700. I just had the brakes looked at a couple months ago and not really believing there was a problem. Chris told me that brakes go bad overnight while the car sits. There were no brake problems...and this new Massadonian will not be returning or referring anyone else. I will be taking my car to someone trustworthy to fix my radio, clock, and alarm...can't believe this place has been around this long. They do try hard to charm the pants off you as they rob you...if you are into that.
I guess I need to check and see if the work was done...at all.
My 22 yr old daughter had her car towed to Tosti's after it would not start in a nearby parking lot. It was diagnosed as a starter problem. The shop quoted her a figure of 600 dollars to replace the starter. I went online and saw the average cost of a replacement (parts and labor) was less than half that. I called three repair sites in the area and was quoted figures between 275 and 300 dollars. When I spoke to Chris at the shop he said that it was a "difficult" car and that was why it cost 600 dollars. It seems clear to me that there is a problem when there is a 100% difference in estimates.
